Richard Lainhart - Introduction to Analog Synthesis
Track one: Introduction to Analog Synthesis (59:25)
Ethereal Live is honored to posthumously release this in depth lecture by Richard Lainhart which covers a discussion of analog synthesis fundamentals and demonstrations of modular electronics. This release marks the first of its' kind for Ethereal Live, but we feel the information discussed in this lecture is of relevance and interest to most patrons of the the net label.
Introduction to Analog Synthesis was a lecture given at the Pocono Skies festival at the Shawnee Playhouse, PA. USA in the Pocono mountains in the Spring of 2010. This one-off festival featured performances, collaborations, workshops and lectures over the two day festival weekend. Richard presented this lecture Saturday afternoon May 16th, 2010 to a crowd of enthusiastic synthesists and electronic musicians.
Knowing this was going to be a great presentation, I began recording the internet broadcast from the beginning, unaware I would be capturing the only recording of this lecture. I passed this recording on to Richard last year, just at a time when he was preparing for a sequel to this lecture.
There were several artifacts within the recording that had to be removed for a proper release. There were a few artifacts for particular reasons that could not be removed. You may hear a few imperfections in the recording, but we hope the content far outweighs any audio discrepancies.
With permission from Richards' wife, Caroline Meyers, Ethereal Live is very proud to release this succinct and informative discussion of analog synthesis suited for new-comers and experienced users alike, by one of the great practitioners and composers of electronic music, Richard Lainhart.
